Theee is probably no family among om* early colonial and revo- 
lutionary stock which has contributed so many distinguished men to 
their country's service in so many widely varied walks of life as the 
Trumbulls — preeminent among statesmen, warriors, divines, poets, 
painters and historians, the fame of the family must still rest, as its 
most enduring monument, on the patriot Governor of Connecticut 
whose nickname of "Brother Jonathan," affectionately given him 
by Washington, will ever stand as the prototype of American man- 
hood and patriotism. 

That so little has ever been done to substantiate the ancestry of 
so notable a family seems a grave omission on the part of our his- 
torians, and I esteem it a privilege to be able to throw some light on 
the obscurity which has thus far enveloped its origin. 

As is well known to aU who have taken an interest in the sub- 
ject, there were two John Trumbulls (or Trumble, as the name was 
then generally written) in the Massachusetts Colony at an early day, 
and there has been no little confusion regarding them among gene- 
alogists. As a matter of fact, however, there was no connection 
whatever between them, and nothing has ever been discovered that 
would indicate that they were even known to one another. They 
were : 

I. — John Trumble, Cooper, of Roxbury in 1639, and among the first mem- 
bers of Mr. Eliot's Church there, and the following year (13 
May 1640) made freeman of Rowley. He brought to this country 
a wife Ellen and son John.* 

II. — John Trumble, Mariner, of Cambridge in 1636, was also made a 
freeman in 1640, and removed to Charlestown in 1655. He had 
wife Elizabeth ; perhaps married here.f 

There has always been a family tradition attributing the origin of 
one or both of them to Newcastle on Tyne in England, and this at 
length found confirmation in a power of attorney of Susan Blackiston 
of Newcastle on Tyne, widow, dated 27 August 1653, to Joanna Scill 
of New England, to recover for her, inter alia, a debt dating from 
1637, of John' Trumble, cooper, late of Newcastle on Tyne, and

now of New England.* This gave us the evidence that it was the 
cooper and not the mariner who was from Newcastle, while the will 
of William Kinge of Ipswich, Co. SuiFolk, ship carpenter, f to which 
Mr. H. F. Waters kindly called my attention, must beyond doubt 
refer to the second John, the mariner, as we now know the wife of 
the former to have been a Chandler. 

It has been my great good fortune to locate one of these with 
absolute certainty, and the other beyond a reasonable doubt, although 
some further evidence is needed as to the last. 

Being recently in the North of England I made a careful examina- 
tion of the Consistory Court of Durham, the results of which are 
printed herewith, but they are most disappointing, as the Trumbull 
wills were few and these few yielded but little information. This 
task completed I had but one day to spare, having to keep an ap- 
pointment at the Probate Court at Lichfield, and I resolved to devote 
it to a Parish Register search of Newcastle. This important and 
populous city contains no less than four Parish Churches, and it was 
manifestly impossible to see them all in a day. Reasoning from 
analogy that if our man was a cooper he would probably have re- 
sided near the wharv^es and shipping, I selected the church nearest 
the river (All Saints) to begin with, and my delight may be im- 
agined when I found, in rapid succession, the marriage of John 
Trumble and EUinor Chandler in 1635, the baptism of his daughter 
Beriah in 1637, and his son John in 1639. The burial of Beriah, 
four months after her baptism, leaving the family as we first find it 
in America, makes the identification complete, and fixes the date of 
the emigration within a few months. 

The remainder of the day was spent in exhausting the Register, as 
far as time permitted, of all entries of the name, but in spite of the 
large number of these found, the result, as far as this particular 
family is concerned, is somewhat meagre. The records only com- 
mence in 1600, and the only baptism which could, chronologically, 
have been that of our man, is John the son of James in 1612, and I 
have serious doubts as to their identity for this reason — John Trum- 
ble of Rowley was evidently a man of more than ordinary education 
and intelligence, he wrote a clerkly hand (no common accomplish- 
ment in those days), was Town Clerk of Rowley until his death in 
1656, and taught the first school there : J but James, the father of 
the John baptized in 1612, is recorded as a "Kielman," that is, he 
occupied the humble position of a laborer on one of the keelboats or 
lighters used in loading vessels or conveying freight about the 
wharves, and it does not seem likely that a man in his position could 
have given his son the education which we know the emigrant to 
have possessed.

The other three ancient parishes of Newcastle may, however, give 
us the parentage of John Trumble which All Saints denies us. 
They are St. Andrew^s (Reg. 1597), St. John's (1587) and St. 
Nicholas (1558), the latter being the mother church. Gateshead 
in Durham, ou the opposite bank of the Tyne and integrally a part 
of Newcastle, the Register of which dates from 1559, should also be 
examined. The parentage of EUinor Chandler, which was not found 
at All Saints, should also be sought in aU of these. 

It may be, however, that we must look further afield and across the 
Scottish border. It has always been believed that the TrumbuUs 
of England were descended from the broken remnants of the once 
powerful border clan of Turnbull, whose romantic origin is so well 
known,* and which, harried in turn by Scotch and English forays, 
was finally broken up and scattered. In 1545 the EngHsh burned 
no less than twelve castles and two towns of the clan in the Valley 
of the Rule, I and although the Barony of Mynto remained vested in a 
chief of the name until the middle of the 17th century, J the power 
of the clan was broken, and it was thenceforward but a shadow of 
its former self. 

* " Between red ezlarbanks, that frightful scowl, 
Fringed with grey hazel, roars the mining Roull ; 
Where TurnbuUs once, a race no power could awe, 
Lined the rough skirts of stormy Rubieslaw. 
Bold was the chief from whom their line they drew, 
"Whose nervous arm the furious bison slew, 
The bison, fiercest race of Scotia's breed, 
"Whose bounding course outstripped the red deer's speed, 
By hunters chafed, encircled on the plain. 
He frowning shook his yellow lion maine. 
Spurned with black hoof in bursting rage the ground, 
And fiercely toss'd his moony horns around. 
On Scotia's lord he rush'd with lightning speed, 
Bent his strong neck to toss the startled steed ; 
His arms robust the hardy hunter flung 
Around his bending horns, and upward wrung, 
With writhing force his neck retorted round, 
And roll'd the panting monster on the ground, 
Crush'd with enormous strength his bony skull; 
And courtiers hailed the man who twned the bull." 

Leydens' Scenes of Infancy, p. 102. 

The adventure took place in the forest of Callender, near Stirling, and its date is ap- 
proximately fixed by a grant from King Robert Bruce in 1315 of lands in Fulhophalch {i.e. 
Philiphaugh, a short distance west of the Rule), to Willielmo dicto Tumehull, for "a reddendo 
of one broad arrow at the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary." (Reg. Mag. Sig., 
p. 6). He was slain at the battle of Halidon Hill in 1333 in a single combat with Sir Robert 
Benhale, a Norfolk knight. (Hutchinson's Northumb., ii., 70: Ridpath's Border Hist., 

"Walter Turnbull, probably son of the above, was early in the possession of Mynto, so 
long held by the family, and which was confirmed to him, or a descendant of the same 
name, by King David III. in 1370. (Robertson's Index, p. 33, No. 48). Before the middle 
of the 1.5th century they had obtained the Barony of Bedrule (Stoddard's Scottish Arms, 
ii., 49), having by this time become a powerful border clan and rivalling the Moss Troopers 
of Liddesdale in audacity and daring. In 1510 their excesses had become so great that the 
King of Scotland marched with an army to the waters of Rule and executed summary 
justice on the clan. (Jefierey's Hist. Roxborough, 330.) This blow and a deadly vendetta 
with the Kers, aided the border warfare in weakening and finally breaking up the clan. 
The last who clamed the chieftainship, after the failure of the direct line of Mynto and Bed- 
rule, was a John Turnbull of Know, about 1672-78. (Stoddard, ii., 50.)

The alien tax in the Lay Subsidies at the Public Record Office in 
Fetter Lane, the results of a brief examination of which are printed 
herewith, seems to clearly indicate the Scotch origin of the Trum- 
bulls, and so to point out to the Clan Turnbull of Bedrule as the 
progenitors of the race. 

We will now turn to John Trumble the mariner. Being engaged 
one day in a search of the Baptismal Registers of St. Dunstan's, 
Stepney, London, my attention was attracted by the occurrence of 
a family of the name, and I beheve that John the son of Robert 
Trumble, mariner, of Wapping, who was baptized 25 Sept. 1608, 
will prove to be the John Trumble of Charlestown, who in 1665 
was 48* and in 1686 w^as 80, | according to his own depositions. 
These last dates are utterly irreconcilable, and we can only conjec- 
ture that the first of them should be 1655, or that his age should 
have been 58 instead of 48, to make them harmonize with each other. 
Admitting this error, they are, taken in connection with the mari- 
time profession of the father, most suggestively near to the date of 
baptism as given : while the statement of Savage, that he was in 
his 80th year at his death in July 1687, exactly tallies with the 

baptism. I 

Robert, the father, unfortunately died intestate in 1614, § but the 
will of the mother, Judith, may yet be found, or some further and 
more exact reference from some of the King, Hichman or Sandwell 
families. II The wills at Bury St. Edmunds should also be seen in 
this connction, while a further examination of the Stepney Regis- 
ters for Marriages and Burials might, and most probably would, 
demonstrate or disprove the theory I have promulgated. 

There was a family of Trumbulls of London, fishmongers and 
shipowners if not mariners, in the 16th century, whose wills in the 
Pre. Court make a very good pedigree of four generations,** and 
whom I have suspected to be the prepositors of Robert of Stepney, 
but no confirmatory evidence has yet been found, and I believe that 
their place of origin will be finally located in Suffolk or Essex, pro- 
bably derived, like the Newcastle family, from the Clan Turnbull. 

In the meanwhile I submit the results of my stray gleanings during 
the last half dozen years in the English fields in the hope that other 
than the two grains of wheat which I have pointed out may be 
found among the chaff, and may prove of service to some co-worker 
in the cause.

vse of her selfe and children in case of necessitie — it being in 
trustees hands and bringing four pounds interest yearly. He 
made will 12 Jan^ 1598. He had messuages and tenements in 
St Dunstan's in the East by lease of the ffishmongers company. 
Said Emanuell died last Michaelmas. Executors refuse to pay 
the money. He had also, 14 June 42 Eliz'^, four tenements in 
Little Holland, co. Essex, bringing twenty pounds g ann. He 
borrowed mone of one George Turfelt and gave bonds. Said 
Rich*^ Edmonds"* pursuaded him to convey messuages to him as he 
could not pay, pleading affection of a brother (as he was to yo"^ 
Oratrix). Oratrix offers to pay: he refuses to return the bonds. 
Defendant's reply. — John Edmonds was of the Misterye of ffish- 
mongers of the Cittye of London. He demised said messuages 
to one William Beale, and made Henry Edmonds and Richard 
Edmonds, theis defendants, his Ex*^^^ A mere legacy should be 
sued for in the Ecclesiasticall Courts and not in this honorable 
Courte. CompP is in decayed estate and greatlye indebted : so 
as if Defendts shoulde delyver vnto her said fifty pounds it should 
be vtterly wasted. It was not for all her children : twenty 
pounds were also bequeathed to Mary Trumbull her daughter. 
They will willingly pay these sums to suche psons as this Courte 
shall awarde. Trumbull was much indebted to this Def*^ and 
made default of payment. John Edmonds left the money to 
Richard Edmonds and not at all to the said children.!
